Technologies surrounding the Internet continue to evolve, and with the development of network infrastructure and digitization, businesses such as content distribution, SNS, and e-commerce are steadily expanding. Nishimura & Asahi has considerable experience of advising on contractual issues, copyright and other intellectual property, personal data and privacy issues and any other legal issues related to Internet business. We regularly advise clients on emerging legal issues relating to the latest technologies. In addition, as the Internet world is borderless, the issues are often cross-jurisdictional in nature; therefore, where necessary, we handle such matters by collaborating with local attorneys across a range of jurisdictions.
